Artist led Pop-Up Theater Company and playwrights Kate Cortesi, Brenda Withers, Emily Zemba, and producer victor cervantes jr. are pleased to announce details for the 2021 edition of The Pool, a temporary consortium of playwrights producing their own plays in rep at the New Ohio Theatre from November 1–20, 2021. The Pool’s vision is to create a sustainable model where playwrights lead their own processes and by-pass the slow gatekeeping of institutional American theater. Cortesi, Withers, and Zemba inherited this pop-up theater company from The Pool’s founders, Susan Bernfield, Lynn Rosen, and Peter Gil-Sheridan, who produced their own plays at The Flea in 2017. Sliding scale tickets for the 2021 edition are now on sale at
